Exeter Incubator unit gets £800k grant
The University of Exeter has received a grant of £800,000 to expand its existing incubation services.
Selected businesses will receive dedicated support at the Exeter Science Park Centre. Projects such as Environmental Futures and Big Data Impact Lab have benefited in the past.
The funding will be used to enable improved co-working spaces, plus a technology supported working lab for SETsquared Exeter and Exeter Science Park clients to use.
Dr Sally Basker, chief executive of Exeter Science Park, said: “Exeter Science Park supports innovative STEMM companies to deliver extraordinary growth.
Joe Pearce, head of SETsquared Exeter, said: “Exeter is fast becoming a recognised hub for STEMM companies, with Exeter Science Park at the core of this.
“The enhanced support that we are able to provide innovative companies, thanks to backing from the Enterprise Zone will heighten Exeter’s economy dramatically.”
